Comprehension: Generate Questions
You can generate questions as you read by asking yourself what is happening and what might happen next in the story.
Good readers ask themselves questions as they read to help them to check their understanding of the story and focus on important ideas.
Comprehension:Make Inferences Good readers draw on clues provided by
the author and their own experiences to help them understand what the author has not stated directly.
For example, the author may tell about only a few of a character’s thoughts and actions, but a reader may have experienced something similar and will be able to use that experience to predict what could happen next.
